be mine & giveaway

Valentines is NOT one of favorite holidays. Probably because, I have not had a Valentine for almost a decade. No matter… my little divas are always fun to shop and decorate for. And as a velentines treat to my readers, leave a comment on any of the posts this weekend and on Monday a lucky winner will get a fun CHA prize package including – Papers from Echo Park, Making Memories Bravissimo, and more!

Hanging in our entrance hall are these big hearts. Each heart is a little umder 12″ and decorated in its own special way. Keep reading for a close up and instructions for each one. I am thinking about cutting some vinyl saying  to go right above it…we’ll see.

  1. Freehand cut a heart shape from patterned paper.

    I do have a valentine but I decorate more for our girls they love to come home from school to the house decorated and we always add some new hearts to our collection every year. Yours are lovely and I am also partial to the black & white one – gorgeous!

    I’m not much for Valentine’s Day either. My friends and I call it ‘Single Awareness Day’. Love the hearts!

    Beautiful hearts!!!! Valentine’s Day isn’t one of my favorite holidays either and I have a valentine!!! He’s soooo good to me but I’m still not a fan. LOL

  12. Cindy Strickland

    You never disappoint on the glitter. I have not made anything for Valentines. My boys are too old now. May have to make a card for the hubby though.

  13. Patti Martin

    Your hearts are so cute!! Such a great idea! Would look cute hanging from the ceiling but decorated on both sides, too. I rarely decorate for Valentine’s Day.

    I’m not real big on Valentine’s either-but must admit I love your creations. They’re not as traditional as most of what I see-I can see me doing some of these.

    Totally love these hearts – my 6 year old grand-daughter and I have been making “long distance Valentine’s” this weekend. she lives in Michigan, I live in Idaho – she calls me and tells me how she wants the cards made – was absolutely the most fun! Mailed her an envelope with cards yesterday for her, her mommy and her daddy for her to write in . . . that was the most fun Valentine’s ever!

  22. Mary W

    Anna!! Love the valentines! They are SO BEAUTIFUL!!! Just love ’em all and all of your stuff too!!!!!!!
